Heh. First off, shout out to makogun2000 for the idea to check in with what Laura has going on during this filler; given she wasn't in the last chapter and won't be in the next one (besides the cover but we'll get to that), this wound up being a pretty convenient way to check in with her and have some fun before we get into the thick of things. What better time for a Christmas filler story arc than heading into June, eh?

So yeah, this'll be the next few pages of the filler, though I'm not sure if it'll run the entire rest of the break or not; probably just depend on how it goes over and how much we enjoy doing them. We do have some ideas for future ones floating around.

Sort of funny, given the timing we kind of waffled on whether or not it'd be a good idea to joke about Alex being given a dress given what he said in the last chapter and part of what he's dealing with in the next, though I figured it doesn't hurt to have some dramatic irony about it. Plus it is just a cute idea... especially since while Laura's embarrassed to even be buying the thing I could see Alex wearing it without hesitation if in a better mood.

Heheh... Yeah, I really had fun with the back-and-forth on this particular filler. We were locked into Ropun but not sure QUITE where to take it. The idea that she's Christmas shopping was a good way of reminding folks where the current timeline is for the comic, and was a good way of showing off personal stuff for characters who are otherwise occupied.

Martin had the gift idea, but I randomly threw out the dress idea for something she could give "Dorothy." Like he said, we were reluctant on actually going with it, but love the result. ^^ I was giggling to myself thinking up the dialog as I wrote the filler.

Also this is going up on my birthday. ^^ Or an hour before, but eh.
